Great Get Away
My wife and I stayed for the first 18 days in February 2016. Overall, we were very pleased with the roomy, comfortable and clean studio apartment. We found the owner David to be responsive and easy to talk to and deal with. The location was convenient for visiting the sites of Kona and the the island, but away from busy street and traffic noise. The recommendations of David for what beaches to see and snorkel was very helpful, especially with my wife's inexperience and first adventure into the ocean and with snorkeling. We love the close location to the Kona LDS Temple which was beautiful to see and visit. We did find some of the appliances very dated and in need of replacement which we expressed to David. If you are a light sleeper, then the noise from upstairs apartment may be a concern. The noise of voices, walking and dishes from the upstairs are evident, especially in the late night and early morning hours. We unfortunately had very noisy tenants for several of the nights of our stay who were active most of the night and the their noise was very clearly heard. I did not give a five star rating due to the upstairs noise.
